fall is here

Well, almost. It’s still pretty warm here and the leaves have just started to turn colors. But that doesn’t mean I can’t take the dudes out for some pre-fall photos, right? It was time for some nice new photos that can go up on the wall πŸ™‚ And, as you can probably tell, they were more concerned with giggling and having fun with each other πŸ™‚

We just got back from vacation time in Germany. The first time the dudes met all the German side of the family. They do know my parents and their partners, but not my grandparents, cousins and even my sister. This year was full with birthdays that needed celebrating, so we decided now was a good time to go, since I had just gotten my American citizenship and the boys were old enough to do space a travel with us without me having to drag diapers and other baby stuff around.

It took us 5 days of trying to get on a flight and we arrived on day 6 of our vacation time. Sadly we only had one week and only had time for family and my closest and best friends. I know there were so many more people that I wanted to meet up with, but there simply wasn’t enough time.

We will be back next year though, since there will be another round of big birthdays to celebrate πŸ™‚

Here are some impressions from the first family trip to Germany πŸ™‚

Lovebugs | one year later

I met Cara and Nathan at the dog park. Our dogs have crazy girl crushes on each other, so we started to hang out more, so, you know, the dogs can go all crazy together. And now, we like each other too πŸ˜‰ I’ve actually been waiting for them to ask about a session since I saw them the first time. Beards are just so incredibly cool in photos! And then they did! They wanted to celebrate their first wedding anniversary with some ‘one year later’ photos. These two are definitely still right in the middle of their honeymoon phase and are not afraid to show it πŸ™‚ And as if it couldn’t get any better, Cara totally let her nerd flag fly πŸ™‚

Cara and Nathan, thank you for letting me capture this moment in your life. I hope you stay crazy in love forever, always have fun together and that you enjoy the moments we froze in time for you πŸ™‚

tell me a story | april 2014

We had a few warm days this month, lots of rain, but no snow. Don’t get me wrong, I love snow, but I also love seeing nature wake up and kids outside. Definitely the kids outside. It’s so nice to be able to open the back door and they can play outside the whole afternoon.

Here’s one of those afternoons πŸ™‚

And please don’t forget to check out what the wonderful Julie was up to this month πŸ™‚

their world | april 2014

It’s the first month this year without snow! And sun! Lots of sun! We also had spring break, me turning another year older and grandparents visiting from Germany. Needless to say we had a lot to do.

their world | february 2014

Phew, it’s already time for another installment of “their world”. This month has been something. So many snow days, I can’t even tell you. I know the kids liked it, and that’s all that matters, right? Well, I tried my best to catch some of their world with my camera. Here’s snowman building, chocolate in shorts eating, duck feeding and playground fun πŸ™‚
